There is a school uniform and, with parent's support, children are strongly encouraged to wear it.  We believe there is much to recommend the wearing of uniform.  Uniform helps the children to feel pride in their school and builds a strong sense of common identity and purpose.  All items are standard school wear and can be purchased from any shop of your choice.  Whilst we insist on colours, we do not insist on items bearing the school logo.


If you would like to order items with the school logo on, please order these online at  Please note that you need to allow up to six weeks delivery time from the date of ordering.  Outdoor fleeces are also available.


Second hand uniform is sold throughout the year by The Friends of Monkston, please email them at for more information on when the next second hand uniform sale will take place. 


MK Storehouse hold a free uniform recycle event during the summer holidays.  This event is open to all and no referrals are needed. During the last event, they provided basic uniform items for over 550 Milton Keynes children.  Please visit their website for more information.


If your child is eligible for Pupil Premium funding the school may be able to help with the cost of school uniform for your child.  Please email and we will try our best to help.


Not Suitable for School

We ask that parents do not send children to school wearing high-heeled shoes or other unsuitable types of footwear.  We also ask for your support in not sending children to school wearing make-up or jewellery.  The only exception being for children with pierced ears who may wear one stud in the lobe of each ear, but, for reasons of safety, these must be removed or covered with a plaster foor PE and games lessons.

For Physical Education and Games

On the day your child does PE or Games, they should wear their PE kit into school and remain in it all day.  You can choose for them to wear shorts or jogging bottoms depending on the weather.


PE Uniform

Shorts - navy blue or plain dark colour

T-shirt - plain white

Trainers - plain colour (such as black, grey, navy or white)

Pupils will need to wear warmer clothes during the winter.  We suggest plain navy, grey or black tracksuit top and bottoms.


Please mark all items of uniform with your child's name


What else will your child need to bring in to school?

  • Your child will need to bring a small book bag into school for their reading book.  These can be ordered via the uniform website.  Please do not send your child into school with a backpack as this will not be needed and are difficult to store.
  • Your child can bring a snack into school to eat during the morning.  This should only be fruit or vegetables.  No other snacks are permitted and will be sent home if sent into school.  The snack should be sent in a small named container.
  • Your child should also be sent into school with a named water bottle.  We ask that this only contains water.
